This guy can't hit a watermelon with a lampost. Beckles always has been a line-drive hitter who uses the entire field. The Retired or Inactive Players do tend to sit Beckles when the opposing team throws a lefty. It's no secret he can't touch the left-handed breaking ball.
Baserunning & Defense
Beckles isn't fast, but he's a heady baserunner who rarely gets thrown out. When you play Beckles you're not putting him in for his glove. Jerrod's arm leaves a little to be a desired.
One has to wonder what Jerrod Beckles is doing in AA. In all honesty, he could use a lot of work on the fundamentals in the low minors.
